Maintaining Records and Files

A typical office has its own system of filing records and important information. The front desk office assistant manages this filing system and maintains the records. In this role he/she might organize online and paper files for easy access and quick retrieval. Working with files also includes suggesting new organizing systems if needed and fulfilling file requests.

Managing Correspondence

With the presence of email and texts, the management of correspondence seems to have no end. This is where the front desk assistant steps in. One of his/her duties is to manage his/her own correspondence as well as that of the school, students & teachers. A front desk office assistant will follow up on to-dos and then file the emails in appropriate categories for later.

Greeting Guests

Because the front desk office assistant is usually the first person someone sees when he steps into the office, she is responsible for managing the way visitors are greeted. The assistant should be aware of where children, teacher & the director are throughout the day so he/she can relay proper information about wait times and whereabouts. An assistant must be able to effectively balance greeting visitors with her administrative duties.

Answering Phones

Another responsibility of a front desk office assistant is to manage the phone lines. He/she might be called upon to answer the company's main phone line and direct calls to the proper people. While the assistant may have limited incoming calls himself, he might answer calls for co-workers who are either busy or otherwise unavailable. When this happens, the assistant will usually be responsible for supplying information, taking messages and keeping co-workers informed about the time, date and nature of calls.
